Mighty Canadian Minebuster is a wooden roller coaster located at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It was designed by Curtis D. Summers and is one of the four original roller coasters that debuted with the park in 1981. The ride was originally planned to be the centerpiece of the never-built Frontier Canada section of the park.[1] When the Frontier Canada area finally opened in 2019, Yukon Striker was the centerpiece.



The ride is an out and back roller coaster. It was modeled after the former Shooting Star at Coney Island in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.[1]

In recent years, some of the hills have been joined together making them much longer with less of a peak therefore significantly reducing the amount of negative g-force experienced.[2]


2 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 30 riders per train. The trains were built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company.
